3 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA CSEP-CPT Scope of Practice

4 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA What is a Scope of Practice (SOP)? A SOP provides a concise description, in broad, non- exclusive terms, of the activities and areas of professional practice. It does not list specific tasks or procedures because these can become outdated as practice evolves in response to changes in knowledge. CSEP-CPT Certification Requirements V2 Oct2013 4

5 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA What happens when professionals work outside their SOP? When professionals work outside of their scope, they do not only expose themselves to legal risk, but also may risk the safety of their clients. Legal claims may arise in the fitness industry if trainers fail to recognize when to refer a client to another appropriate health care provider OR if trainers cause injury due to working beyond his/her SOP CSEP-CPT Certification Requirements V2 Oct2013 5

6 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA CSEP-CPT Scope of Practice slide 1 of 5 The CSEP-CPT is a professional with a minimum of two years of University/College coursework in specific core competency areas related to the exercise sciences from an accredited post-secondary institution. CSEP-CPT Certification Requirements V2 Oct2013 6

7 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA CSEP-CPT Scope of Practice slide 2 of 5 A CSEP-CPT works with apparently healthy individuals or those with one stable health condition who are able to exercise independently. CSEP-CPT Certification Requirements V2 Oct2013 7

8 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA CSEP-CPT Scope of Practice slide 3 of 5 The CSEP-CPT: a.Conducts basic pre-participation health screening assessments on all clients using evidence-based tools and gathers information about physical activity and lifestyle behaviours. b.Administers various fitness assessments on clients including submaximal aerobic fitness, musculoskeletal fitness (muscular strength, endurance, power, flexibility, and balance), and anthropometry. CSEP-CPT Certification Requirements V2 Oct2013 8

9 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA CSEP-CPT Scope of Practice slide 4 of 5 The CSEP-CPT: c.Gathers and applies information about the physical activity, fitness, and lifestyle of a client or group of clients to design, implement, and monitor client- tailored submaximal exercise programs for healthier living. d.Recognizes their own area of expertise and refers clients who fall outside that expertise to a CSEP Certified Exercise Physiologist®, physician, or other appropriate health care provider. CSEP-CPT Certification Requirements V2 Oct2013 9

10 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA CSEP-CPT Scope of Practice slide 5 of 5 The CSEP-CPT is not certified to: Use an ECG for any purpose. Utilize any assessment protocols or design exercise programs that require maximal aerobic or anaerobic effort. Assess muscular strength using maximal 1RM assessment protocols or design programs based on resistance loads exceeding 90% of the predicted 1RM. Administer fitness assessments, or design, implement and monitor client-tailored exercise prescription strategies for populations with unstable medical conditions, more than one medical condition, under 15 years or over 69 years, or with special needs that the CSEP-CPT feels ill-equipped to address. CSEP-CPT Certification Requirements V2 Oct

11 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA Defining the SOP – Apparently Healthy Generally considered to be an individual who has not been diagnosed with any medical conditions and does not have any overt signs and symptoms suggesting the development of any medical conditions.  For example, if using the PAR-Q+, then apparently healthy would be all ‘no’ answers on page 1 and a signed, dated, and witnessed declaration on page 4 of the document. CSEP-CPT Certification Requirements V2 Oct

12 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA Defining the SOP – Stable Health Condition Slide 1 of 2 Generally considered to be an individual who has been diagnosed with a health condition such as CVD, diabetes, etc, and meets the following criteria: » Client is being medically managed and is asymptomatic, » Client is not experiencing difficulty controlling the condition with medication (if prescribed), and » The benefits of physical activity for the client clearly outweigh the risks.  For example, if using the PAR-Q+, then a stable health condition would be all ‘no’ answers to the follow-up questions on pages 2-3. CSEP-CPT Certification Requirements V2 Oct

13 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA Defining the SOP – Stable Health Condition Slide 2 of 2 A stable health condition also infers that the client does not have a ‘yes’ response to one or more of the following questions on page 1 of the PAR-Q+ (regardless of the answers to the follow-up questions on pages 2-3). » #2 - Do you feel pain in your chest at rest, during your daily activities of living, OR when you do physical activity? » #6 - Do you have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse by becoming more physically active? » #7 - Has your doctor ever said that you should only do medically supervised physical activity? The above questions infer that the potential of an unstable medical condition  refer client to physician for further evaluation and clearance (via the Physician Physical Activity Clearance Form) CSEP-CPT Certification Requirements V2 Oct

14 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA Defining the SOP – Exercise Independently Generally considered to mean a client can be mobile on his/her own without any assistance from another person (i.e., client can move from a seated to standing position without assistance; client can get onto exercise equipment without assistance, etc.). CSEP-CPT Certification Requirements V2 Oct

15 © CANADIAN SOCIETY FOR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY CSEP.CA Bottom Line on the CSEP-CPT SOP CSEP-CPTs must always work within their areas of knowledge and ability within the CSEP-CPT Scope of Practice » Passing the CSEP-CPT examinations does not necessarily mean that a CPT has the knowledge and ability to work with all clients » Some CSEP-CPTs, especially those with only 2 years of post- secondary coursework, may wish to expand their knowledge through professional development credits (PDCs) before working with clients with stable health conditions Always put the safety of the client first. » ASK YOURSELF: Would a reasonable CSEP-CPT with the same educational background provide this service? CSEP-CPT Certification Requirements V2 Oct
